“Where is Master Roshi?”
“There is no news from Master Roshi, and we also don’t know when those martial artists, who we have sent over, would return!”
One bad news after another came. The big-bearded sergeant waved his hand powerlessly. If they could not get any supplies from the outside world, they would run out of ammunition and provisions.
Right now, there were only two possible ways to defeat the Androids. One was to use technology to develop more powerful weapons, the other was to find out the weaknesses of the Androids. In this regard, the scientists led by the head of the Hoi-Poi Capsule Cooperation were already carrying it out. However, with the emergence of Androids, a large number of scientists had died. Therefore, relying on the abilities of the remaining scientists, the progress of the research was very slow. The hope of success was very slim.
In addition to technological means, another method was to groom outstanding martial artists. Legend had it that, there was a group of very powerful dragon ball warriors 13 years ago; they protected the peace of earth and vigorously fought against Androids. Unfortunately, in the end, they still failed.
Compared to the first method, the second was more likely to succeed.
“Since the warriors who can fight against Androids could emerge once on earth, then it is definitely possible now too!”
The big-beard sergeant was expectant in his heart. Although he had not seen those heroes of more than a decade ago with his own eyes, he was fortunate to see the descendant of those heroes… Mr.Gohan, he was indeed a warrior who could fight against the Androids.
“Master Roshi used to be called the God of Martial Arts, and he will surely be able to train martial artists.”
They could only hope for this. Whether it was to deceive themselves or leave behind a good memory, the people of earth could never lose hope, because when they really lost hope, it meant that they had accepted extermination.
At the same time, on the other side of the earth.
On an island surrounded by the sea.
The island was not big, and it was surrounded by an ocean with surging waves, ten kilometers high. The water splashed, raising huge waves that surged forward with great momentum. In this small place, the last hope of mankind was being nurtured.
“Practice carefully, the training of the martial arts depends on constantly putting effort in improving oneself.”
“You, and you, your movements are too stiff, so you need to increase your attack speed by a little bit. Wrong! Don’t use up all your strength when you punch!”
“The training of Ki is a long-term process, don’t be too hasty.”
There were only a few small single-story houses on the flat island. There was a narrow space for practicing martial arts in the middle. More than a hundred young boys, with bare upper bodies, were sweating profusely like rain as they waved their fists. Under the burning hot sun, these people’s faces were full of sweat, but they didn’t have any complaint as they meticulously trained.
Not far away, there was also a group of arduously training young girls who were waving their hands and feet, and under the guidance of an instructor, they were punching and kicking each other.
These boys and girls, who were divided into two groups for training, were martial arts practitioners that had been selected from all over the world. They were not too old, and they had the best potential.
“Instructor Videl, when can we defeat those Androids?” When they were resting, a short-haired girl with good looks went to the instructor and asked.
Videl gave a bitter smile and shook her head. “The Androids’ strength is beyond our imagination, and you are still far from strong. ”
“Train seriously, and you will definitely succeed one day.”
Videl encouraged the girls.
At this time, Videl’s thoughts couldn’t help but drift back to more than ten years ago. Androids still hadn’t appeared then, and Earth was still a scene of prosperity and peace. However, with the emergence of Androids, all the beautiful places on earth became purgatory. Most of the girls on the training ground were underage; they had never experienced that kind of peaceful life, and they also don’t know if they could see it or not in this life.
Heaving a sigh, Videl withdrew from reminiscing and quietly looked at the people who were intensely training on the training ground.
“Aunt Chi-chi, where is Gohan?” Videl asked as she headed towards a middle-aged woman.
This middle-aged woman was Goku’s wife, Chichi, and also Gohan’s mother, who was her savior. If it weren’t for Gohan, she might have died very early during the riots.
After being in contact with each other for several years, she knew that Aunt Chi-chi was originally also an outstanding martial artist, but being a housewife for many years, she had neglected her training, until her husband, Goku, passed away and the Androids appeared. Only then did she started her training afresh. Now, she was the chief instructor of the girls’ group in the training camp.
Chi-chi sighed and looked at Videl, who was in her youth, saying, “Gohan is training at Bulma’s place, and I don’t know when he will come back.”
Currently, Chi-chi and Videl were one of the few martial artists left on earth, but whether it was Videl or Chi-chi, they clearly understand in their hearts that the only person on the planet who could really deal with Androids was——Gohan. Of course, perhaps the underage Trunks could also be included, because they both had half of a Saiyan’s bloodline, and their growth potential was much higher than that of earthlings.
Compared to Saiyans, earthlings were really not worth mentioning.
“OK.” Videl sighed faintly; she felt that the number of times she had sighed during this time had increased significantly.
“I and Aunt Chi-chi’s Battle Power is less than 500; which in front of the Androids, isn’t even enough for us to fight back. All she can do now is to properly train these kids with Master Roshi and Immortal Korin. Maybe experts like Senior Krillin and Senior Tien Shinhan can appear amongst them.”
Earth was currently facing an unprecedented crisis, just like how King Piccolo had wreaked havoc hundreds of years ago, but only more dangerous. After all, King Piccolo had wanted to rule over humans. There were a lot of people who had survived, but now, the Androids exist only for killing.
Because of the continuous killing by the Androids, the number of people on Earth had dropped to less than 10 million.
Decreasing from a few billion to less than 10 million. The tragedy could well be imagined, but what was especially hateful was that most of these survivors, who were on the verge of death, and had gone through challenging experiences, but they were still not of one mind. Amongst them, there was no shortage of vicious and evil people.
Videl, who knew the inside story very well, understood that if it was not properly handled, the people of Earth might become extinct in a few years.
“Chi-chi, let everyone rest for a while.” An old voice came, and a weary Master Roshi, who had a face full of grey beard, walked over.
“Okay, Master Roshi,” Chi-chi responded.
She had always opposed Gohan in walking on the path of a martial artist. She hoped that he could become a scholar, but when the end of the world really arrived, she found that those scholars were of no use. Scholars didn’t have any use during the end of the world. Now, the Earth was not lacking scholars but powerful warriors.
are there any good seedlings in these people that can become strong?” Videl asked.
Master Roshi lightly shook his head. “If it was before, they would already be quite good, but our opponent is the Androids… They are still too weak compared to Goku and Krillin.”
That was to say, there were no seedlings that could be expected to become useful? There was a disappointment in Videl’s eyes.
He had lived for hundreds of years, and naturally, he wouldn’t hesitate to die. If it wasn’t because there were no martial artists on earth, he would have already rushed to fight it out with the Androids. How could have still lived on with the humiliation until now?
“Unfortunately, Piccolo is also dead, or else, we could have used dragon balls to save everyone,” Oolong, on the side, said dejectedly.
“Well, don’t be disheartened. Not long ago, I heard from Gohan that Bulma’s research had made some new progress. Maybe, she can create more powerful weapons!” Blonde-haired Launch said with a submachine gun in her hand.
After leaving Kame House more than 20 years ago, blonde-haired Launch followed Tien Shinhan, but Tien Shinhan wholeheartedly devoted himself to martial arts and never responded to her feelings until the Androids appeared 13 years ago. She then again reunited with Oolong and the others.
“Don’t show off; ordinary weapons are useless against Androids,” Oolong said.
“What did you say? Do you think I wouldn’t make a roast pig out of you?” When the blonde-haired Launch heard this, she immediately took out a machine gun and threatened him.
Looking at the scene of blonde-haired Launch and Oolong quarreling, Master Roshi couldn’t help but recall the scenes in Kame House decades ago. Unfortunately, time rolls on, and the years have passed. Now, the people and things from that year had changed……
